Electricity Deregulation in Maine
The split between utilities and generators came in 2000 for the state of Maine. Utility companies were then responsible for maintenance of power lines, distribution of energy and transmission lines. This created the divide between Maine electric suppliers and utility companies.
Maine electric companies have a standard offer service (default service) for those who have not switched. To get a competitive supply rate, you must actively choose an alternative licensed supplier.
You are likely overpaying for your energy if you have never switched.
Utilities in Maine
In Maine, the electric utility handles all maintenance and is responsible for getting your energy to you. Most importantly, if your power goes out, trees end up on a power line outside or there is an emergency, you will need to contact your utility company for help. Your Supplier is unable to assist with restoring your service.

Electric Rates in Maine
In a fixed-rate plan, the energy portion is fixed for the duration of the agreement at the contracted rate. While fixed-rates are usually more of a premium, they come with less risk to the customer if there is a spike in the energy market.
Variable rates change from month to month with the market and can often have a monthly service fee attached to them. Rarely do these make sense for residential or small commercial consumers.
